Mumbai: A dream for every sleep lover has come true! In a unique initiative by a Bengaluru-based start-up came with an internship for all those who loves to sleep. An online sleep solutions firm, Wakefit, is willing to give you Rs 1 lakh for nine hours of sleep daily for 100 days.

How do you land this job?

 

To grab this internship all you have to do is to prove your love for sleeping to the company. The company, however, has one condition. You cannot use a laptop during 'work' hours.

The selected candidates will sleep on the company's mattress, get a sophisticated fitness and sleep tracker and counselling sessions from experts.

Shortlisted candidates will be asked to send in video testimonials validating their love for sleep.

Winners will be given a sleep tracker that will record sleep patterns before and after using the internship mattress.

“We are looking to recruit the best sleepers in the country who are willing to go to any lengths to make sleep a priority in their lives. The Sleep Internship initiative aims to bring back the focus on sleep health by celebrating and applauding people who obsess about sleeping well,” Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, director and co-founder of Wakefit.co told Business Insider.

"We are looking to recruit the best sleepers in the country who are willing to go to any lengths to make sleep a priority in their lives," he added.

What's the job description?

A quick glance on the Wakefit website and here's what you need to know:

What’s your job?: Sleep.

Dress code: Pyjamas.

Skills required: A fanatical passion for sleep and an innate ability to fall asleep at the slightest given opportunity. An unmatched zeal for breaking your own sleep records, a mastery over this fine art, and of course, your favourite pyjamas!

Once you have completed your part of the "job" rightly, you'll be rewarded a sum of Rs 1 Lakh as a stipend.

According to a survey titled 'Right to Work Naps' by Wakefit, 70 per cent of the 1,500 respondents have said they do not have a 'nap room' at work.

Nearly 86 per cent of them said that such nap room will help increase productivity.
